NEW YORK (AP) -- The 500-pound cow that led New York City police on a mile-long chase after bolting from a Queens slaughterhouse is now living large at a Long Island farm sanctuary.

The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals says they transported the young cow, nicknamed 'Molly,' to a Calverton sanctuary called the Farrm on Thursday afternoon.

ASCPA assistant director Joseph Pentangelo says the all-black cow seemed to be enjoying her new freedom, adding "Her future's a lot brighter now than it was 48 hours ago."

The spirited cow dodged cars, cops and a few irate butchers as she fled a mile through an urban area of Queens on Wednesday. Members of the NYPD's elite Emergency Services Unit eventually captured the cow.
